When it comes to landscape photography, there are generally three sensor sizes: APS-C, full frame, and medium format, but even smaller than APS-C is micro four thirds. In a genre that often requires significant physical exertion, such portable cameras can be quite attractive, but can those especially small sensors keep up with the demands of professionals and enthusiasts? This great video takes a look.
Coming to you from Jason Friend Photography, this interesting video takes a look at using micro four thirds cameras and lenses for landscape photography. Traditionally, photographers opt for as large a sensor as possible given their needs and budget, but the advancements in modern sensor technology have broken this paradigm a bit, allowing creatives to prioritize other things as well, such as portability and features. And those two categories are where micro four thirds often shines, with its very small size allowing photographers to carry a bag of equipment with ease. Furthermore, many micro four thirds cameras have some of the most innovative features on the market, which is part of the reason it maintains such a fiercely loyal fan base. And, of course, there are typically much more affordable. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Friend.
